a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Well, since it's International Zine Month and I figured I would write SOMETHING about my most current zine. It's called Both/And, and it's kind of about addiction, kind of about anxiety, kind of about meditation...I don't want to label it too much but it's most definitely QUEER and most definitely MENTAL HEALTH-based (I am a therapist).
